The Six Senses brand has announced the opening of its debut property in Cambodia — Six Senses Krabey Island.
Six Senses Hotel Resorts Spas, a hospitality company that operates one hotel, 15 resorts and 31 spas in 21 countries, confirmed the resort’s opening on 1 December 2018.
Six Senses Krabey Island is set on a 30-acre private tropical island located three miles off Ream National Park in southern Cambodia. From the airport, it’s a 10-minute drive to the resort’s mainland reception where guests board a sports cruiser for the fifteen-minute crossing to the island. Sihanouk International Airport is served by flights from Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Ho Chi Minh City and Kuala Lumpur. It also has the capability to facilitate private jets and helicopters.
The resort offers 40 private pool villas that use sustainable materials with modern technology. Sustainability initiatives include the resort’s own water bottling plant using glass bottles, the Earth Lab that tends a 3,700 square metre organic market farm, coral propagation program, the support of school programs in nearby villages as well as the introduction of sustainable practices within the local Khmer communities.
To celebrate its opening, the resort is offering a Six Senses Krabey Island Private Experience Package. It features 20% savings on the best available rate for guests who’ll visit from 1-21 December 2018 and 11-31 January 2019.
The four-night package includes accommodation in a Hideaway Pool Villa Suite, a specially-crafted tasting menu for lunch at Aha restaurant, and dinner at the signature restaurant Tree excluding alcoholic beverages for two.
In addition, the package includes a private sunset cruise with cocktails and canapes, a 90-minute therapeutic Khmer Herbal Massage for two, plus a visit to a local pagoda and the resort’s own organic farm followed by a hands-on Khmer cooking class and lunch.
Other guest activities and amenities at the resort include water sports, fishing, snorkelling, organic farm visits with cooking classes, night sky observatory, horizon lap pool, jungle fitness circuit, and the open-air Cinema Paradiso.
